David Hilbert's 6th Problem refers to one of the 23 problems he stated as being most important for mathematician's to solve. This problem speaks to the axiomization of physical sciences that depend on geometry. This problem is neglected by both mathematicians and physicist yet it is the most important problem facing experimental and theoretical physics today.

Does anyone know if the great Prof. Ed Witten (Mathematical Physicist and String Theorist) has ever attempted the problem?
